Teach Kindness


This post is sponsored by Sesame Street and HBO, in collaboration with Bloggin’ Mamas. Although I received compensation to share this information, all thoughts are my own. 

Becoming a parent means you need to lay the foundation for your children’s future. It may seem scary, but there’s always help.

You know the saying, “it takes a village”? Well, it really does. It takes all the help you can get to raise your children to reach their full potential. When you turn on the news and hear about sadness and suffering throughout the world, it can make you cringe at the thought of raising your little ones in this world.

Here’s something you should remember, you have control over your child’s perspective on what’s going on around them. The world has a lot of good in it, as long as you choose to see it.


That’s why Sesame Street is hosting its K is for Kindness Tour, a free, mul­ti-city expe­ri­en­tial tour timed to and inspired by the new, 47th sea­son of Sesame Street.

The K is for Kindness Tour was created for preschool fans and their fam­i­lies and fea­tures hands-on dig­i­tal learn­ing fun, par­tic­i­pa­tion from local libraries in each com­mu­ni­ty. Activities include “meet and greets” with the cos­tumed char­ac­ters, a 15-min­ute inter­ac­tive live stage show star­ring walk-around ver­sions of the series’ beloved char­ac­ters Elmo and Abby Cad­ab­by.

We were so excited to hear that the tour will be stop­ping our local mall — the Pem­broke Lakes Mall — this Sat­ur­day, Jan­u­ary 21st between 11am and 4pm.  You can click here for more details on this upcoming event.

The new Sesame Street season will feature our long-time friend Elmo in an updated and fun version of “Elmo’s World”. With 25 of the five-minute installments, the new season will highlight lessons taught through pre-school relevant topics, live action films, and interactive thinking games.

    This is pretty cool. Sesame Street is an iconic organization and collaborating with local libraies seems to be a great way to get the message out.

      That’s what I was thinking. I really love what they’re doing to get communities excited about learning and the perks to being a kind individual.

      It really is. I learned so much watching their shows as a toddler. I love to see my kids when they get excited about all-time favorite characters like Elmo and Cookie Monster.

    Their advocacy towards children to teach kindness is a great news for everyone and we know that our children are in good hand. We grow up watching Sesame Street and learning from them is a lot of fun.

    We absolutely love Sesame Street and a program that focuses on teaching kindness. The one thing that we have focused on since our daughter was born was teaching her to be kind … it has paid off. She is an amazing heart and every day I feel blessed to be a part of her life. LOVE THIS! Love Sesame Street!

    I can’t believe Sesame Street has been around for so many years. The people and puppets have been a part of so many children’s lives. K is for Kindness is an invaluable lesson. I hope y’all enjoy the event at your local mall. Will you share pictures?

    This is so cool. This is a great way to teach kindness to kids with characters they can relate too. I grew up watching Sesame Street, so did my kids and now it is my grandkids’ turn. I will have to check if they are going anywhere near where we live.

      I hear ya! I can’t wait to pass it on to our grandkids as well. Hopefully, they’ll still be around.

    This is such a great motto for the new Sesame street series! Children should learn about kindness as soon as possible. Kindness is what makes a person good.

      I agree. When I heard about the new series, I got so excited. Kids need positive programs to learn from.

    I always used to love Sesame Street when I was a kid! I wish that more kindness and tolerance was taught to kids these days but sadly it doesn’t seem to be the case. This is such a great program that can bring about real amazing changes.

    It is so important that little kids learn the importance of kindness and empathy at a young age. I love that Sesame Street is still going strong.

    Our little guy loves Elmo- I’m definitely going to have to check this out. We work really hard to teach feelings while allowing him to experience his. It’s a fine line of experimenting and expectation.

    It’s important to teach kids about kindness and respect as early as possible. It’s one of the things that help shape how they treat others when they grow up. I think it’s awesome that there are shows that help kids understand what kindness is all about.

    Teaching kindness is one of the best gift you can give to your child. I love that Sesame Street is hosting a kindness tour! I’d love for them to come to my city!!

    I hope that those shows will not cease. They are really a good influence to the kids. It will help them to grow up in a way that they can be an asset someday.I don’t like wild cartoons teaching kids to fight. I hope that there will be many shows like Elmo too.

    I think it’s important to teach kindness especially while the kids are young. This is a lovely way to do that! I would love to take my kids to this tour if only we lived nearer!
